Re: Cat5/Cat6...... Phone/DSL install
You never want a punchdown block in a crawl space. They are usually nasty, humid, and full of cobwebs. Not only that, but they suck to get in. Locate the splice in a civilized area.
Most 66 blocks these days are Cat5 rated. Cat5 is overkill for DSL signal anyway (though it makes no sense to buy cat3 these days). Your inside wiring is just a drop in the bucket. That DSL signal travels of miles of non-cat cable to get to your house.
If someone refers to herself / himself as a "guru", they probably aren't.
